Roger hits a line drive backhand into the net, Cilic wins the game and thank goodness for him that he did, I think that might have broken his spirit had he lost that.
Many ticket holders will be in ecstasy at the prospect of watching Roger Federer, arguably the world’s most popular athlete, in his 30th grand slam final.
At least Cilic has shown no signs of physical infirmity to date, whereas last summer he was reduced to tears by a blister on his right foot – a similar problem to the one that forced Hyeon Chung to retire in the middle of Friday’s semi-final.
As ever on Telegraph Sport, we have all manner of live coverage throughout the day, but the first order of business is the Men's Final of the Australian Open, which will start at 8.30am UK time.
Cilic came through a tough four-setter against Pablo Carenno Busta in the fourth round and defeated Rafael Nadal in the quarters when the Spaniard retired in the fifth set.
